From Oct 13 to Oct 15 2014, the 1st G-NMR school will be held at the Helmholtz-Zentrum in Neuherberg. It is the aim of the course to familiarize PhD students and postdocs with the NMR knowledge base and state-of-the-art experimental approaches. The course addresses scientists who focus on biomolecular NMR spectroscopy. A basic understanding of NMR is required in order to be able to follow the lectures. The school will start on Oct 13 (Monday), 9 am, and close on Oct 15 (Wednesday), 8 pm, after dinner.

Topics include all aspects of biomacromolecular NMR spectroscopy covering both solution- and solid-state NMR methodology. It will be the aim of the course to provide the theoretical fundamentals of NMR spectroscopy, as well as implementation and analysis of multi-dimensional experiments for protein assignment and structure determination. We will cover TROSY, RDC, relaxation dispersion and paramagentic relaxation enhancements (PRE) experiments, strategies to analyze and quantify ligand binding, and modelling of protein structures employing NMR restraints. At the same time, also the  practical aspects of pulse sequence programming, processing and data anlysis will be teached in exercise sessions.


Attendance of the school is free of charge. For organisatorial purposes, every participant has to register by sending an email to
